Free Pocket Currency Converter

How much does that souvenir cost in dollars?  How expensive is the food at the quaint sidewalk cafe?  Now you don't have to do the math in your head when you travel overseas.  We've designed a free, pocket currency converter that you can print out and take with you.  It easily fits in a pocket or wallet.  Note: you must have Microsoft Excel 97 or later in order to download and use this free pocket currency converter.

There are links to two free pocket currency converters below.  They both look and work the same way.  The difference is that pocket currency converter #1 is designed for use with foreign currencies that are close to, or above, the valuation of the dollar, and pocket currency converter #2 is for foreign currencies that are undervalued -- i.e., worth considerably less than the dollar.  In addition, we have included a handy tip chart for foreign currencies.  Since tip amounts in foreign countries are often lower than in the U.S., we've started the tip chart with 5%.

To use either free pocket currency converter --

  1. Visit a website that has the latest exchange rate.  We recommend as it is easy to use, and it's free.  There are two different conversion percentages shown.  You will want to use the percentages shown in the row " 1 USD =".  To find currencies for countries that are not shown in the chart, scroll down the page to the currency converter.  Enter "1" in the first box, choose "USD United States Dollars" from the drop-down menu for the second box, choose the foreign currency for the third box, and click on the "Convert" button.  Note:  if the country you are visiting is not shown in the drop-down menu, scroll down and choose "(More currencies available)."

  2. Write down or make a note of the exchange rate with the U.S. dollar. 

  3. Click on one of the links below to download a free currency converter.

  4. You can either "Open" the currency converter (one time use), or "Save" it on your computer (to use now and later).  Both options are free.

  5. Enter the currency exchange rate in the shaded cell next to "Foreign Exchange Rate"

  6. Depress the Enter key on your computer's keyboard

  7. The currency converter will calculate the exchange rate for a variety of different foreign currency amounts.

  8. Print the currency converter page, cut out the box, and place the converter in your wallet or purse.





Most frequently used for Euros, British Pounds, etc.


Use for currencies with high exchange rates, such as Mexican Pesos, Japanese Yen, etc.
